What If It's True? | The Bible Is True

Every year as the calendar approaches Easter, the weeks leading up to the superbowl of Christian holy days are filled with images of, stories on, questions raised about Jesus of Nazareth. Some of these stories will take take a historical look at the person of Jesus, using the New Testament of the Bible as the primary source for information. After experiencing the claims of the Gospel centered around Jesus, the reader is left pondering the implications of the story. Other media outlets will use extra-biblical evidence and raise questions over the validity of the Jesus story recorded in the Bible. Experience these articles, essays, and TV specials and you are left with the question, “What if it’s not true?” So where does one go from here? Is there more than a feeling, intuition, or personal experience that can support the claims of the Bible? Does a follower of Jesus have the support of historical evidence that yields unwavering confidence in Jesus’ life and mission? For support, we turn to men and women who have dedicated their vocational work to answering these questions.

Josh McDowell considered himself an agnostic. He truly believed that Christianity was worthless. However, when challenged to intellectually examine the claims of Christianity, Josh discovered compelling, overwhelming evidence for the reliability of the Christian faith. His work has emerged as foundational in the conversations centered around faith. Reading his work, you will notice an impartiality towards the scholarly process, specifically in how he handles the search for and discovery of ancient extra-biblical texts. You can find his website here. For a compelling look at the manuscript reliability of the New Testament, see his essay here.  

Dr. Dan Wallace is a contemporary of McDowell and often referenced in the field of assessing the reliability of ancient literary work. Wallace is the founder of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts. Wallace has spent the last 16 years photographing over 350,000 images of New Testament manuscripts, discovering more than 90 manuscripts in the process. He has made the works of antiquity available for viewing to the everyday person at no cost. View his compelling efforts here.

The reliability of the Bible has been, and will continue to be, challenged until Jesus returns and restores all things. Another challenge to living this life while we see dimly through a glass is the reading of Scripture in its proper place. Contrary to the belief of many, the Bible is not a rule book or a manual for living. Neither is it a science or history textbook where the reader is tasked with memorizing answers and applying knowledge via an end-of-unit assessment. There are elements of law, history, narrative, prose discourse, poetry and the arts present all throughout the story of Scripture. But at its core, the Bible is a story; a grand narrative written as Jewish meditation literature. This is not a literary genre that will have a dedicated shelf when perusing the aisles of your local bookstore. It takes work to understand the terms and conditions of this ancient form of writing. Jewish meditation literature invites a lifetime of reading and re-reading to immerse ourselves into the story. Ultimately, the authors of the Bible want me--the reader--to adopt their story as my story. As Tim Mackie of The Bible Project notes, as we read the story, the story begins to read us. We see ourselves in the human nature of characters in the story. We relate to their moments of failure, and find hope when they put their trust in a divine God who has mercy on their broken souls.

This is the story of of the Bible. And it offers a credible alternative to the story of the world, the cultural narrative, in which we are immersed every day. This was part of the plan: to be in but not part of. These two stories are going to be in constant conflict with each other and it calls for a conversion. It is an invitation to see and live in the world in the context of another story.


What If It's True?


We live in an age that questions everything and attempts to create reasonable doubt around anything by asking, “What if that isn’t true?" This may work well in a court of law, but has been applied heavily to questions of faith. Questions like, “What if the Bible isn’t true? or “What if Jesus wasn’t really raised from the dead?” or “What if God isn’t good?” 
Join us for a series where we will ask the inverse question, "What if it’s True?”, because how we answer these questions has significant implications on our lives.

God is calling us out of hiding into a full and flourishing life; one where we travel freely and lightly. To get there, we must step out of the shadows and embrace the light through a lifestyle of confession. Confessing to God (1 John 1:19) and to others (James 5:16). When we live in the light, the burden of shame is lifted and we can experience the blessing of being fully known and loved.

This first step is followed by release. We need to let go of the pain, the death, the shame, the bitterness, the pride, and everything else that has come with carrying secrets. Release is so important because if we want to walk into our destiny we must deal with our history. It is easy to want to just get past it, but we have to move through it. One of the ways we release the past is to lament. To lament is to grieve the losses we have experienced.

We are not generally taught how to grieve in our culture. We hear things like "toughen up," "don't cry," or "get over it," and we avoid emotions like sadness and run from the feeling of loss.

The Scripture encourages lament - two thirds of the Psalms are laments, Jesus wept (John 11:35), and says in the Sermon on the Mount, "Blessed are those who mourn, for the will be comforted." (Matthew 5:4).

The healthy thing to do is to identify the losses in our lives. Death is the obvious one, but there are many more. We need to grieve the loss of attacthments, like kids going away to college, the inabaility to have a baby, moving houses, the betrayal of a close friend, or changing jobs. We need to grieve the loss of status, like a job, influence, finances, or maybe mobility as we age. Finally we need to grieve the loss of meaning - this might be letting go of dreams, a way of understanding faith, or mourning the loss of innocence.

Every loss is worth grieving. We lean into these losses, not so we can always be sad, but so we can expereince the comfort and strength of the Holy Spirit. Just like in the movie "Inside Out," joy came alive when sadness was around. Joy and sadness sometimes run on parallel tracks. and if we numb the sadness, we won't experience the fullness of joy.
